In response to the wildfire that continues to devastate the residents and community of Fort McMurray, CENTURY 21 CanadaTM has established the CENTURY 21 Dynamic Realty Fire Fund to help our very own franchisee Diann Pellerin and her team who were forced to evacuate their homes and office in the Alberta town.
In one week, our System members in communities across the country have come together to raise more than $10,000 in support of the CENTURY 21 Dynamic Realty office and their families. We’re more than half way to our goal of $21,000 and we still need your help and generosity! Click here to show your support with a donation by Monday, May 16. CENTURY 21 Canada will work with Diann to allocate and distribute funds to those in her office who have been directly affected by this tragedy.
We have remained in constant communication with Diann since the evacuation began, and she would like to share the following message:
“It's been 8 days now since we evacuated our beautiful city and things are finally starting to feel a little normal again. My agents are spread across a few different provinces with friends and family. We lost 2,400 homes/structures in Fort McMurray and the fire, although still not out, has been contained away from the city at this point. City workers are back in the city and have already started capping off gas lines and water lines. We are being told it might be another 2 to 3 weeks before the first residents will be allowed back. My office, my home and all my agents’ homes (as far as I know) are all still standing so we were very, very lucky. We are anxious to get back to rebuild our city and each other. The amount of support and generosity from family, friends and complete strangers has just been overwhelming. I want to thank each one of you for all of the support you have shown to us as well; CENTURY 21 has been a true family. In closing, I just want to say we are all doing well, we are strong and we will get through this. #fortmacstrong." - Diann Pellerin, Owner, CENTURY 21 Dynamic Realty
